This was a regular Saturday afternoon spent in a purpose built arena specifically for cockfighting, which is legal in Puerto Rico. Testosterone is rampant here, with complicated betting being central to each fight. The odds were still being negotiated during the fights, and piles of dollars change hands between the bouts. The good news is that the cocks don't always get killed. Often they are separated when there's a clear winner. Other times, they're not so lucky.
